Superb illustrations DavidR.  :)

Just the typing showed in the end port 2080 cause the 1 in 12080 was hidden, too small field width in IE..

   at first mine did the same thing, so I tried again and it accepted the whole number the 2nd time
     a question do i leave it like this -forever- now ?
 or will there be an update that will fix the issue
     Also My pages are loading faster too

Dear DavidR
I'm totally confused now, sorry!
I am running the newest V4.6.652 without problems, except the nuisance shutdown problem.

BUT: WebShield, I did never configure it with a proxy, didn't know about that. And in fact looking at those screens mentioned in the movies for IE6 and Firefox, the proxy is not set. But looking at the screen WEBSHIELD inside Avast (from taskbar icon one-click) I can see the shield operating, I see the number of checked items (about 5000 after 24h) and I see the internet address of the last checked page, which corresponds nicely with my browsing.
NOW: Is this a automatic setup thing working here, may I disregard the explicit instructions of those movies, or what? I am truly confused. Please advise me, and maybe others too... thanks a lot, Hanspeter

The illustrations and thanks should go to the Alwil team,

1. My post was in direct response to this post - http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=12912.msg109272#msg109272 as they were looking for the tutorial.

Earlier versions of avast automatically used web shield and the transparent proxy, set-up was not required, However, with version 4.6.652, avast checks for the presence of Zone Alarm and gives the user the option not to enable the transparent proxy, they will need to set their browsers proxy so that it works with web shield.

The Tutorial only relates to those using Zone Alarm and have chosen to set-up the proxy themselves, rather than have any conflict with web shield and ZA's privacy settings.

Quote from VLK:

Well, the thing is, there seem to be some problems related to ZA/WebShield interaction even in the case of ZA Free. It's strange, but that's the way how it is.
My personal hypothesis is that some of the privacy blocking features are still present in the Free edition of ZA (not configurable, they're just there)...

Time will tell if this was a wise decision, but for now, it's IMHO better that 10 people will reconfigure the stuff manually than for 1 to be unable to browse the web


I'm a bit confused right now!
I use ZA free and did the manual configuration following the tutorial. Now I've read other replies that I should not have done this...
Do I need to do change this?
Also, only 2080 and not 12080 entered as the port number. Should I try again for the whole number?

Thank you for any advice,
Annie

The lessor of two evils would be to manually set-up the proxy (as you have done), rather than have the potential conflict between ZA's privacy settings and avast's web shield.

If you have entered the 12080, that is correct, if not and you have entered 2080 then you need to change it. There is a bit of a problem with the tutorial as it is only showing 2080 (the 1 is missing or out of sight).

Thank you, DavidR...

I did enter 12080, but after I enter the last zero, only 2080 shows in the box...so does that mean it took the whole number or just the last four? Sorry for such a simple question, but I don't want to take anything for granted. :-[

Athene, the 12080 should be there, but the text box will only show the last four digits. Try highlighting the number back to the beginning and see if the elusive "1" is there.

You can overinstall (upgrade). Installing the new over the old will keep your settings.
mmm ... just ran the setupeng.exe for 4.6.652 and it says :

This setup does not contain all necessary components.
Uninstall old version and run setup again.

what's up ??
